- Mix up your routine to avoid boredom. Instead of just going on a walk around the neighborhood, use this opportunity to go for a hike with family and enjoy quality time together. This is a good way to combine exercise and family commitments.
- Plan and organize your week in order to allow yourself time to exercise. Make it a priority! This will keep you both physically and mentally stimulated.
- Remember that exercise comes in a variety of forms! From taking the dogs on a walk on a nearby trail or doing some holiday shopping around the mall. Add in those extra steps by choosing a parking spot further away.
- You don’t have to go to the gym. Design a home workout plan for when your schedule is very tight and you just don’t have time to get to the gym. This can include squats and crunches. Its amazing what you can accomplish at home.
